What is it?
« on: February 21, 2017, 11:52:14 AM »



Still not back into active photography, but rummaging through the archives, trying to find an image with negative space, I came across this picture.

I haven't got a clue what it is. It was taken in Graz, Austria, and follows straight after some shots of a church.
They are the last images of that particular 'session, and I cannot remember what is is!

Does this remind you of something? Can you jog my memory?

It is NOT Alka Seltzer, and I do not think it was shot during a visit to an aquarium, as there should me more 'fishy' pictures present.

It is not an UFO either, or I would remember. (Unless they erased my memory of course.)

It must have been something that attracted my attention, and I think it will come back to me, if someone makes the right guess.

Any suggestions?

(Just put it on Flickr, and it was 'faved' almost before I finished uploading; do some people have apps that automatically 'fave' any new upload, regardless of quality or subject?)

A reflection?

The bottom looks sharper than the top which suggests to me either a reflection with the object not shown, something very small (limited depth of field) or possibly an illuminated jellyfish.

I was going to suggest a light reflection in the Font water ( nudge into movement) or in a puddle.  :-\

People on Flickr suggested a reflection, and as I am fascinated by reflections, it could well be. Probably not in a puddle, maybe on a car?
I cannot remember it at all, and should have deleted it, as it is so blurry, but I didn't. And now it drives me mad.

Looks like gas jets like from a central heating system?  :doh:

No definitely not gas jets. The picture was taken outside.

Reinardina, is it a light source that has been zoomed to give the zoom/blur effect? just a thought either that or its just one of those pictures that you take themn merrily walking around and you do not realise that the camera has taken it.

Oh yes; Collective Spirits caught up in the lens   ;)  :D  What else is photography than capturing the Light  :2funny:  :legit:

Or simply an inadvertent snap of some bright light peeping in through the lens  :tup:

Thank you all for your comments.
It was most definitely not an accidental picture; it must have caught my attention for some reason.

I am trying to 'reconstruct' my walk through Graz that day, and I have got the church and the sloping street 'back,' but coming across this reflection still eludes me.

Did you stop for a coffee to rest &  :idea: reflect  ;) 
I quite often nudge the table & watch the shapes at play, created by the reflection of the kitchen light in my morning cuppa  :)

If we had stopped for refreshment, mine would have been a beer  :beer: but I don't think we did.

I have a very vague idea now, that it was a reflection in a parked car. It may come back, but I think I'd better move on, before it becomes an obsession.

Gargoyles tend to be high up, and this is at street level, but it must have been something different/strange, or I would not have photographed it.
